The Things that Upset Congregations
Thu 15 Apr 1779: I went to Halifax, where a little thing had lately occasioned great disturbance. An angel blowing a trumpet was placed on the sounding-board over the pulpit. Many were vehemently against this; others as vehemently for it. But a total end was soon put to the contest, for the angel vanished away. The congregations, morning and evening, were very large, and the work of God seems to increase, in depth as well as extent.
